I remember words the from Wash - I am a leaf on the wind .....

Some people says it relates to the kamikaze poem known as A shackled leaf from WWII , I thought it was  fitting.

Here is the poem.

Forever shackled by these chains,
I wallow in their lies.
They tie me to my fears and hate,
And all that I despise.

I see my friends across the road,
But my shackles hold me back.
They have looks and wit, they say.
Everything you lack.

The birds and clouds glide in joy,
Dancing across the sky.
But my chains tie me to the ground.
Shackled tears I cry.

Another mountain lies before me,
A new challenge I must try.
Don’t fool yourself, you’ll never succeed.
My shackles tell no lie.

I stare into the lonely mirror.
Blinded to my perfection.
I see nothing but a broken soul.
Shackled to its reflection.

I hug my knees and cry for someone
Who understands my pain.
As expected; no reply,
But the rapping of the rain.

My only rest I find at night,
After the death of day.
And with cold and burning steel
I cut my life away.

This is all I’ll ever be worth.
Dig deeper, until I’m dead...
My shackles laugh. They have won.
My arm...its crying red.

But one bright day I realise,
It’s myself I’ve been trying to find.
These oppressive and evil shackles
Live only in my mind.

My shackles return, fighting back,
Fearing what I now see.
Foolish things, they’ll never understand,
I will always be free.

Because I am the Sun,
Raining down my light.
I am a myth,
A whisper in the night.

I am the sky,
Serenity’s haven.
I am a mountain,
The silent warden.

I am the earth,
Life’s verdant source.
I am the wind,
The unstoppable force.

I am the sea,
Caressing the shore.
I am the storm,
The legendary Roar!
These lying shackles,
Bind me no more!
I am a leaf on the wind!


Watch how I soar.

No spoiler since the movie is how old now...

Killing off preacher earlier made Wash's death that much more unexpected - on top of how sudden it was.  At that point I was not sure if any of the others would make it or not.  I really wish this movie had done well.  Time to watch it again.

100000% agreed

The CGI didn't age that well, but it doesn't matter because of how great the story, characters and actors are.

Cool! I'd love to have a good example of the Firefly. That 1/250 scale one that comes apart so you can see internally looks pretty nice. They're hard to find. And when you do they're $550+.
